Melmoth the Wanderer: Penguin English Library

Melmoth the Wanderer: Penguin English Library

By Charles Maturin

This violent, profound, baroque and blackly humorous novel is the story of Melmoth, who has sold his soul in exchange for immortality in a satanic bargain, and now preys on the helpless in their darkest moments, offering to ease their suffering if they will take his place and release him from his centuries of tortured wanderings. 

Melmoth the Wanderer
(1820) blended Gothic fiction and psychological realism to create a work of hallucinatory power.
